Teeth grinding is a fairly common habit which can damage tooth enamel, cause jaw pain, or irritate your gums.
Other Signs and symptoms of teeth grinding include:
- Loose teeth
- Fractured or chipped teeth
- Worn or flattened teeth
- Sensitive teeth
- Frequent headaches
- Trouble sleeping at night
At Dental Care of Texas, we want to help our patients avoid the consequences of teeth grinding. Our dentists recommend a custom-made night guard that is designed to prevent the surfaces of your teeth from rubbing against each other while you sleep. Night guards are a well-known and highly respected treatment for tooth grinding and jaw clenching.
Choosing the proper night guard is essential. The night guards recommended by our dentists are fitted for comfort and to allow for proper breathing. They are also easy to keep clean.
Your dentist at Dental Care of Texas will take an impression of your teeth and have the night guard created by a dental lab. Night guards are very durable and can be used for several years.
If your teeth have been worn, broken or damaged from grinding, we can repair them with restorative treatments. Dental crowns, inlays or onlays can fix the shape and size of a broken tooth. We'll return your great smile and restore your self-confidence.
Excellent patient care is our number one priority. We offer flexible and convenient evening and weekend hours to make finding an appointment easy. We are in-network with most dental providers. If you live in Allen, Flower Mound, Roanoke, Watauga or Southlake, Texas and you grind or clench your teeth at night, please contact Dental Care of Texas to set up an appointment. Our experienced dentists can help find the right solution for you.
